 If you really know me, you know I love me some sneaker wedges! Converse has taken their Lux silhouette, which has a hidden internal 2.44-inch wedge to give your height a boost, and completely encased it in premium leather. The result is the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Lux Shroud, delivering a bold, fashion-forward look that helps protect your feet from the elements. These would look amazing on with a pair of skinny jeans, a tank top and a jean jacket over it. Big shades, hair in a pony and big earrings. 

If you want to order your here.

And if the Star Lux Wedge wasn't enough Converse announced earlier this month that they are paying radical homage to the punk era with a full range of alternative footwear for men and women. Converse goes against the grain with the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star ’70 high top, flipping the classic construction from front to back in an act of creative subversion. The unique design features a rear-seamed white leather upper with the tongue and waxed black leather lacing on the heel.

Ladies Night With Dove Dry Spray

Ladies Night With Dove Dry Spray

Life as we all know has its ups and downs and therefore we have to be prepared for its biggest moments...and by this I mean with our deodorant and of course a good group of girl friends! My must have fashion accessory is definitely my Dove Dry Spray. I have been using it for a few months now and when I first discovered it, it completely changed my life. lol I say that honestly because I was searching for a antiperspirant due to other brands just not working for me and was fed up with feeling uncomfortably musty. It was just not a good feeling. Thats why I have switched over to 48 hours of visibly dry with odor and wetness protection. Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant is the latest beauty trend so don't be on the late show when Im giving you the secrets to success now. It also leaves no visible residue meaning you can wear what you want and you won't stain a thing. 

Last week I hosted a few girlfriends over for some champagne and food while we chatted fashion, hairstyles and the performances from the award show that was on. Before prepping for my day, which I knew would be a fun, long and an amazing time, I showered and sprayed my Dove DrySpray on, got dressed, got cute and we saw lots of shiny sequence dresses and big hair which is the latest trend just like Dove Dry Spray. 

We had a great time talking fashion and getting to know each other.

My good blogging friend Annie Vasquez of Miami's TheFashionPoet was one of 3 correspondents at the Premios Los Nuestro awards and they shared some good tips for getting ready for a big night out.
Getting ready for the big night out means looking and feeling your best, so make sure to get plenty of beauty sleep and drink lots of H20 the night before.

Daniela Ramirez of
Before every big event, I change at least three times to make sure my outfit matches my mood....which can lead to leaving white residue from your deodorant. To avoid so, use the Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant- it's my favorite! It will not leave any white residue while keeping you fresh all night (another plus, it also moisturizes your underarms!)

Kelly Saks of
Deodorant stains are the worst way to start a special evening, that’s why I love that Dove Dry Spray goes on clear and dries instantly. I don’t have to worry about embarrassing white marks on my party dress and can get straight to the fun.
My friend Carmen Contreras from Hot 95.7 sent me this text...

Valentine Weekend Roundup

Monday, February 15, 2016

Happy Monday SpoiledOnes!

Most of us are relaxing at home, and off from work enjoying this President's Day. Anthony stayed home today and is spending time with his cousin that due to parenting schedules, they don't see each other too often.

The weekend was exciting for us. Saturday, we enjoyed the first part of our day at the Children's Museum of Houston. Curious George was in town and was offering photo opps with all the children and parents in celebration of his 75th Anniversary. What a wonderful way for the children to learn about one of their favorite characters by visiting him participating in all the fun activities that the museum offers. Later we made it out to Discovery Green to enjoy the rest of the beautiful Saturday weather. Anthony enjoyed The Trompos or the spinning tops that are presently downtown this fall - Los Trompos are interactive art installation by internationally-acclaimed Mexico City designers Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena.

Children's Museum of Houston goes bananas for endless curiosity!

Take a historical journey and visit with Curious George as he swings by the Children’s Museum of Houston just in time for his 75th anniversary.

 But did you know World War II threw a monkey wrench into publishing plans? Written and drawn by Hans Augusto Rey and Margret Rey, the couple fled Paris in June 1940 on self-made bicycles carrying the “Curious George” manuscript with them. After escaping, the rest became history! 

Join me along with my son Anthony #HtownKid this weekend as we celebrate the upcoming 75th anniversary of Curious George.

Superbowl Beyonce!

Superbowl Beyonce!

The Queen proved why she is the reigning champ tonight! Not only did Coldplay and Bruno Mars play back up to Formation singer; but she just through everyone for a loop when she hit us with the 1,2, punch and announced her Formation World Tour.  

The one woman who can drop a new video for a new song, perform that song at the Superbowl the day after dropping the new video and announce a world tour at the heel of per performance is not only a performer, but a mother, a wife, a daughter and and inspiration to many of us. 

There has been a lot of talk about her video and what it means -- she has guts, courage and without a doubt doesn't give 2 hoots about anyones opinion.

Thank you, Beyonce!
 Thank you for the years of musical happiness, for taking us on your journey that was also our journey. I say that because her songs, carry out moments that some of us live in some way or another. Music connects to the heart and is felt in the soul and she has been someone that I have cried with, laughed, danced, turned up to and I have admired her for many many years. Classy, gracious, humble, simply B. 

If you aren't one of the 11 million viewers that has watched the Formation video--- than here you go!

And, if you want more info on the tour...more info here.

Jessica Alba covers Cosmo

Not only is she beautiful, but she is a powerful, driven and if that wasn't enough...she's Latina!
Jessica Alba covers Cosmopolitan March 2016 issue where she talks about living like a boss and shares some of her success stories. She talks about her first career and how she wanted to be a big action star, to be as relevant as men. She also talks about embracing her femininity later in life and when she got her boobs at a young age didn't really know what to do. 

Jessica is also a mother of 2, married and I would love to say she is a Spoiled Latina too. Her Honest  company brand "spoils" babies at a young age by using products that won't harm their little bodies. No chemicals are used and honestly, the affordability for these amazing products are reason itself to start using safe products on our children early. 

Here are a few photos from the stores soon.

Fiesta De La Flor announcement and interview with Suzette


Yesterday, was the press conference for the Fiesta De La Flor festival in Corpus Christi and what a beautiful experience it was. I drove down the night before, and glad that I did because although I was born in Corpus, I hadn't and still haven't experienced it as an adult, so being out at a small irish pub downtown and seeing the beautiful art downtown was nice.

The City of Corpus Christi Visitors Bureau hosted the press conference to announce this years lineups and special announcements for #FDLF  (watch video) The cities mayor spoke as well as Citgo's representative whom they referred to as "El Jefe".

It was special for me being born in Corpus, I expressed my feelings on my Instagram yesterday while sharing the video on having grown up there and Selena being a teenager when I was a child and me looking up to her and wanting to get an interview with her when I was 9 years old. It's a cute story. lol

The #FDLF festival is scheduled for May 6-7.....who's down to go?

visited her memorial

La Mafia, Pete Astudio, David Lee Garza, Chris Perez, Suzette and Mando 

SpoiledLatina loves cars - Houston Auto Show

Lizza in the House!
Houston, We have Cars!
Lots of them and they are all different from nice to big, round, spacious, tiny, affordable, expensive and everything in between. The Houston Auto Show was the place to be at this past weekend. NRG Park is where all the fun was at. If you had been watching my snaps from earlier that week, you saw that I was at the #HoustonAutoShow on Wednesday having a ball!?

How fun is it to walk around a big open space filled with all types of cars? Chevrolet, GMC, Ford,
Toyota,  Jeep, Mercedes, BMW, VW you name the car and they were there. All except for RR.  I love being in a room of "inspiration" the "one day, I'm going to be driving in the Mercedes G-Wagon" moments fill my heart and get me motivated to keep on pushing.
